Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan was acquired by the Oakland Athletics Thursday, Feb. 25, for SP Aaron Brooks.
Fantasy Tip: Cogs had a bit of a bounce-back season with a .250-16-41 line. He actually hit third quite a bit and performed well with a .270 average, five homers and 16 RBIs in 122 at-bats. We wonder where he fits in Oakland's crowded outfield and if he could move back into the mix at second base, which would give him more fantasy value. He's an AL-only option for now.

Oakland Athletics SP Aaron Brooks has given up 11 earned runs in his last two starts over just 6 1/3 innings.
Fantasy Tip: Brooks ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) sports a 7.62 ERA and 1.59 WHIP in only six starts this year. He's an extremely shaky FantasyScore commodity tonight.

Oakland Athletics SP Aaron Brooks allowed eight earned runs, six hits and two walks over 1 2/3 innings in a loss Wednesday, Aug. 12, against the Toronto Blue Jays.
Fantasy Tip: Brooks ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) had lasted at least seven innings while allowing one earned run in each of his first two starts in Oakland, but he was terrible Wednesday. For the look of things, start him in FantasyScore at home and avoid him on the road.

Oakland Athletics SP Aaron Brooks has allowed just two runs in 14 1/3 innings in his first two starts for the A's this year, and he's the fourth player in team history to throw at least seven innings while giving up one run or less in each of his first two starts with the club.
Fantasy Tip: Brooks ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) surely should be owned in all AL-only leagues the way he's pitched so far. Expecting a third straight nice start for Oakland against the highest-scoring team in the majors at home is foolish thinking, though. Avoid him on FantasyScore tonight.

Oakland Athletics SP Aaron Brooks picked up his first career win Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Cleveland Indians.
Fantasy Tip: Brooks struck out five and allowed five hits and one earned run over 7 1/3 innings. As long as he stays in the rotation, Brooks will be an option for GPP tournaments on FantasyScore.

Oakland Athletics SP Aaron Brooks will start Saturday, Aug. 1, against the Cleveland Indians. P Drew Pomeranz will remain in the bullpen.
Fantasy Tip: Brooks was a key piece of the Ben Zobrist trade from Tuesday. He had appeared in just two games and pitched 4 1/3 innings this season for the Kansas City Royals. Brooks should be allowed to make a couple of starts before FantasyScore owners take the chance.

Oakland Athletics 2B Ben Zobrist was traded to the Kansas City Royals Tuesday, July 28, in exchange for Ps Aaron Brooks and Sean Manaea.
Fantasy Tip: With Zobrist out of Oakland, Eric Sogard ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) figures to return to an everyday role at the keystone. Mark Canha ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) and Jake Smolinski ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) should be expected to see more at-bats in left field, as well. None of these players carries value beyond the deepest of mixed leagues, however.
